Pakistan closes day 3 on 282-6 against Sri Lanka

Younis Khan hit a confident 122 Saturday but Sri Lanka's bowlers hit back to keep Pakistan under pressure after day three of the third and final test at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
The hosts closed on 282-6, still trailing by 131 runs.
Younis' 18th test century helped Pakistan recover from 35-2 at the start of the day. The former captain lashed 12 fours and two sixes off 211 balls in 291 minutes.
The right-hander shared successive partnerships of 98 and 100 partnerships with Azhar Ali (53) and captain Misbah-ul-Haq (50 not out) before Sri Lanka hit back in the final session.
Left-arm seamer Chanaka Welegedara (3-62) spearheaded the visitors' attack while left-arm spinner Rangana Herath grabbed 2-73.
